(Beaver Dam) A local non-profit recently received a donation to help expand their facility in Beaver Dam. Church Health Services got a $25-thousand-dollar check from Horicon Bank for expanding and renovating their building located at 115 North Center Street.
The organization provides dental, medical, and mental health services to low-income children and adults living in South Central Wisconsin. Community Engagement Director Bev Beal-Loeck says the proposed expansion will include a reception and waiting room as well as increase their confidential therapy spaces.
“What it will involve is connecting the garage that we currently have…we have a six-bay garage…emptying that out and that will be reconfigured into a conference/meeting room and some office space,” says Beal-Loeck. “And the office space will be utilized by some of us who are not counselors and get us out of second-floor of our current clinic and those office spaces will be reconfigured so that we’ll have more counseling rooms.”
Beal-Loeck says by utilizing their space more efficiently, they will be better able to serve their current and future patients. She adds that their mental health clinic has experienced a 52-percent increase in clients over 2021.
Over the last ten years Church Health Services has gone from 250 patients to over 52-hundred; two programs provided to five; and 15 employees up to 31. For more information about Church Health Services click HERE. You can also visit their Facebook page or call 920-887-1766.
